Dorset LEP Funding Opportunities


Hello and welcome to the November 2019 edition of my funding opportunities blog.

In this funding blog you will find £millions of Government investment into research and development (R&D).

For the full blog and opportunities follow this link –

The modern Industrial Strategy is now in place and funding of up to £4.7 billion from the challenge fund for R&D is starting to be pumped into UK organisations via these highly competitive competitions. For this reason, Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has a fully funded Bid Writing Support Service to help Dorset organisations to win some of this money.

In the past month we have supported six companies: one company intending to submit into the Business Basics Round (closing December); four companies looking to bid into Innovate UK (IUK) competitions closing in January 2020; and one company applying for one of our Growing Places Fund business loans (guidance and signposting only).
